comment Ways to avoid headaches while cooking
@MHH : There are some chemicals that have a slow onset initially, but subsequent exposures have a quick onset. (which I only know because of the roofing being done at my place of work last year, and the complete lack of concern about the fumes developing in some of our office ... I have no idea if teflon fumes are this way)

comment Which preservatives/additives in ingredients can interfere with kimchi-style fermentation?
I don't know if it's related or not ... but there are some spices that are supposed to increase yeast activity when making bread ... it's possible that they might help microbes as well. See cooking.stackexchange.com/q/12084/67

comment Incorporating capsicum oil into a chicken breading
I'd try adding it to the liquid. But before I'd consider doing that, I'd use dried, crushed habañero in with the dry.

comment How to replicate Cerelac at home?
Are you trying to make your own dry mix, or are you attempting to create the finished product? Because for the final product, you might want to look at rice porridge recipes, possibly replacing some of the liquid with fortified milk.

comment Making cheese sauce
I'd recommend cooking.stackexchange.com/q/4381/67 ... then add cheese. Although it sounds like you're starting with 'kneaded butter', rather than a roux.

comment Efficient method to peel raw potatoes
Most industrial methods use abrasion. I've seen video out there of people using brushes & power tools to get the same effect : youtube.com/watch?v=Uo7K6CUCudU . Most cite ~60 seconds to peel a whole bag, but they videos tend to be jumpy enough that I suspect there are cuts / editing so I don't know if it's accurate.
